Zakaat ul-Fitr – Introduction


Zakaat ul-fitr is a type of sadaqah which must be paid by every Muslim, young and old, male and female, free and slave, at the end of the month of fasting (Ramadhaan).

Al-Bukhaaree and Muslim relate from Ibn ‘Umar that he said, “The Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) enjoined the payment of o­ne saa‘ [2] of dates or o­ne saa‘ of barley as zakaat ul-fitr o­n every Muslim, young and old, male and female, free and slave.”
